10 years as the new children’s museum!

At The New Children’s Museum, there is always something “new” to experience and explore, and 2018 will be no exception. To commemorate this milestone year, we will be collaborating with contemporary artists from prior exhibitions and bringing back visitor favorites. Look for new installations by Brian Dick (childsplay, 2008) and Jason Hackenwerth (Animal Art, 2009) as well as some new artist collaborations. But we need your support to make this happen!

As we embark on our next 10 years downtown, we invite you to make a donation to help make this next decade the best yet by supporting our access and scholarship programs as well as our exciting new installations. Help us bring art and creativity to children and families who might not otherwise have the chance to experience it. Your donation will make a profound and enduring difference. We appreciate your support.
